Hope he has his estate in order.
Wow, that’s sure to help Nardakhami.
Point made perfectly.
The guys in Tehran with the long white beards and the long black dresses have a facination with ropes.
Here in America it is called freedom of religion and free speech.
While this inbred is not the sharpest #2 pencil in the box I whole heartedly support his right to burn a freaken koran or any other book/
I just think burning any book is wrong.
Ya wants to go back to the middle ages? Burn knowledge.
I am sure its not newsworthy at all when Bibles are burned.
Well, the history of Iran says he’s for the long drop whatever happens over here.
Let me see if I have this right:
-Pastor burns Koran, Media plasters the story across the globe
-Obama uses the Constitution as de facto toilet paper and the Media looks the other way
Seems legit /sarc
And in doing so has committed the crime of again embarrassing the world wide Main Stream Media and progressive leftist governments who cower in front of evil Islamicists.
Too bad they never focus on Ann Barnhardt. (I wonder why!)
He’s contributing to global warming!
I used to dislike this pastor, but after Hillary Clinton and David Petraeus begged him not to burn Korans, I began to root for him to do so. I DESPISE the Dhimmi groveling before these murderous savages.
I’m OK with burning Korans, just as long as some big shot Islamisist is holding it at the time.
Why are Jesse Jackass and Al Sharpton never referred to as “CONTROVERSIAL” reverends?
Where’s the proof that the Iranian paster is, still, alive?
The koran contains MIS-information and is used by a death cult to force the world to submit.
I’m not big on book burnin’ either but the first time this came up years ago I figured the way to do some good would have been for the preacher to round up some old Danielle Steele or maybe Zane Grey paper backs and just glue some Koran covers on them, make his point and then burn something worth burning. Pick anything from the fiction rack at Barnes & Noble, glue a pic of Mohammud on it , and light it up. The only thing the mideast nutcases understand is overwhelming force. The Mullahs might step a little more lightly if they see some resistance building -——they have to know they are close to their own “Persian Spring”.
I want to see toilet paper rolls with the face of Mohammed on them.
I want to see miniature Korans but are instead charcoal briquets.
I want to see a 100’ tower with a revolving Koran atop it with flames shooting out of it burning night and day.
And with super sized bacon sizzling on top.
I want to see posters of burning Korans stuck on every single boxcar of a mile long train going through Moslem infested parts of America.
I want them pissed off.
Does he have a right to do this? Yes.
Was it SMART to do this? NO! Unfortunately, all it will do is spark more riots and beheadings, and may even work against that pastor.
There’s a time and a place for everything, but this ain’t it.
I have my copy of the koran on the floor in my car. It helps to prolong the life of the floormat.
>>I just think burning any book is wrong.
>>Ya wants to go back to the middle ages? Burn knowledge.
Its just paper and cardboard. Its like buring a cereal box. It is not burning knowledge because there a billion other Korans out there, along with digital copies. I have one on my Kindle.
Why didn’t he offer a prisoner exchange, himself for Nadarkhani?
I support him for hav having the guts to do it, screw the Fascists if they can’t take a joke, and screw them if they can.
Now why would you want to deface a Zane Grey book?!
I’ve read the Koran just to see what the enemy sees in it and maybe it holds secrets to how the fools think.
If you close your mind to what the enemy sees then you b a fool.
One more thing, in my opinion the biggest tragedy in history was the burning of the Library at Alexandria. Today it would still be one of the largest in the world.
Think of the knowledge lost because some a holes burned the books.
You are right in that the crazy mullahs as well as most of the world understand one thing, power or force.
The koran isn’t going anywhere as it is everywhere.
BUT burning books is a very bad habit to get in to if you read your history.
Seems it gets out of hand one way or another.
And I don’t care to be told how to think one way or the other by anyone about anything.
“I just think burning any book is wrong.”
There are certain books the used book stores here can’t even give away. They make great fodder for the wood-stove.
>>BUT burning books is a very bad habit to get in to if you read your history.
Historically,”book burnings” are conducted by taking all the books that offend those in power and burning them in a big pile. This was in a day when books were precious resources (before paperbacks and digital copies), so it really was possible to eradicate something from your culture by just burning some books. Today, a book burning (especially just burning a few) is a symbolic gesture at best and a pathetic tantrum at worst, similar to a flag burning.
In a nation like the US, it would be virtually impossible to burn enough books to remove anything from the culture. It is much easier to just declare a book racist, sexist, homophobic, etc and make it “unacceptable” for public reading or discussion (e.g. Huckleberry Finn, The Turner Diaries).
Just sayin’ as an example. I’m pretty sure my cowboy friends could find a pickup load of them that are too trail worn to go out again. They just keep them out of sentiment and taking one last drive out to a big bonfire for the Mullahs might be a fitting and honorable end. It’s just a bonus if it PO’s an Imam.
Barack Hussein Obama never mentions WHY Thomas Jefferson had a koran. Just that he had one.
A waste of perfectly good toilet paper.
He could always pee on them to put the fire out.
